Ebony is usually a very dark wood, but the sapwood from the Texas Ebony logs can be a light vibrant yellow, but make no mistake, this part of the wood is very hard and dense like the dark heartwood. No stock photos here...the pick shown is the actual pick you will receive, both sides of the pick are shown in the photos. Made of beautiful Texas Ebony blonde sapwood. This handcrafted premium guitar pick was shaped & sanded independently, it features a concave thumb groove on each side to ensure a firm grip, & also give the pick an incredible feel of control. This pick measures approx. 1-5/16” or 34 mm long X 1-1/8" or 29 mm wide, it is about 3 mm thick at the thickest part of the pick, but it feels & plays thinner due to the thumb grooves, the pick tapers down to a thickness of about 1 mm at the tip, & was designed with the guitar player in mind for comfort & play-ability, this pick is treated with a special oil blend, for lasting protection I let the pick soak in the oil to ensure that the pick is deeply penetrated, I then applied a natural bees wax paste & hand rubbed the pick for a smooth & silky finish, while the thumb grooves keep their grip for comfort & control, & if you perspire or moisten your fingertips, it will actually improve your grip. For some guitarists it may take a while to get used to playing with a wooden pick, but every guitar player that I know, simply can't live without their hardwood guitar picks once taken the plunge. So take your playing to new levels, with the unmatched performance & the true tones that my handmade Artisan wood picks employ. They also make unique & excellent gifts! Thanks for looking!
